Located on the banks of the winding Liu River in the Guangxi Province, this prosperous cultural and industrial city of 1.4 million is located in Southern China. Founded 2100 years ago, Liuzhou is known for its beautiful landscapes that have inspired Chinese artists since 1700 BC. Caves and gnarly stones, karsts and hills are complemented by numerous archeological sites. Its national parks feature architectural displays characteristic of structures built by China’s minority inhabitants.
